Trying to install as directed, my Terminal output contains the following:

Is the problem that my laptop is 32-bit and this software is 64-bit? Should I change the server to a different country? (How would I do that?)
I suspect the answer is that there is no 32-bit version available, that snap automatically takes into account my processor type, and hence there are no installation files in the 32-bit channel.
